Let us hope that Lancaster makes it to the finals. If Lancaster does make it, those us who have Time-Warner cable will be able to see the finals Ohio News Network (ONN) next Saturday.Seeing McKnight in action will equip us to assess how much he, as a freshman, will be able to help alleviate the Zip "big man" and "inside quickness" problem that haunted the Zips this year.

Per Rivals.com, Bardo, McKnight and Roberts each signed letters of intent.That means they have to go to Akron, or sit out a year, just as if they were transferring.

I have the story on the ONN broadcast of the HS championship games.For sure: the Saturday championship for all divisions will be live.Maybe: the Friday games will also be televised live.If not: the ONN crew will be on-hand to film highlights to air on its broadcasts for Friday.All ZipNations: what the highlights/live action on Lancaster and come back to this forum with your observations.
